CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
GDM/Cinevox (Italy), 1970. (reissue)
A lost treasure from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a soundtrack written for a crime film starring Charles Bronson & Telly Savalas, and handled with all the spare subtlety of his best work! Bruno Nicolai's directing the orchestra on this one – and isolated instruments include ... LP, Vinyl record album

Love Is A Hurtin Thing
Selector Sound/Luv N' Haight, Mid 70s.
A stunning set of soul – and an album that will win you over right from the very first offbeat note! Some mad guitars introduce Gloria Ann Taylor's title cover version of "Love Is A Hurtin Thing" – and the whole album follows suit with these really unusual funky elements ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Synthi Time
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1971.
A wonderfully weird record from Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Umiliani – one of his rare electronic albums cut for the sound library scene, and one of his best as well! The style here isn't just electronic for electronic music's sake – but instead really tries to find these warmer, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Got The Goods
GED Soul, 2015.
A killer solo set from DeRobert – a cat you might know as the lead singer for the Half-Truths, but an artist who's maybe even greater here on his own! The style of the record is more blacksploitation soul than the straighter funk of DeRobert's other records – this cool, crispy sound on ... CD

Sittin In
Columbia/Be! (Germany), 1961.
A wonderful set from this cool Australian combo – and one that offers up the group in two nicely different modes! Side one has The Three Out sounding wonderful as a trio – with sublime soul-styled piano from a very young Mike Nock, and exceptional work on bass from Freddy Logan – ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
CBS/Be! (Germany), 1962.
Really beautiful sounds from Australian pianist Judy Bailey – a musician that most folks know for her funk work of the 70s, but who was already pretty darn great, right at the start of her career! This lovely little set was recorded in Sydney's El Rocco Jazz Cellar at the start of the 60s ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), Late 40s.
King Records is best known as an R&B powerhouse from the Cincinnati scene of the postwar years, but the label also managed to explore plenty of points further down south – including some great artists from the New Orleans scene, before bigger labels started taking things over! This ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s.
The great state of Texas turned out plenty of soul records in the 60s – and some of the best of them came from the hands of Huey P Meux – the legendary talent who's responsible for all the work on this set! Huey was also known as the Crazy Cajun – also the name of a label on ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/Be! (Germany), Early 60s.
Totally great work from a young Mike Nock – a pianist that most folks know for his electric and experimental sounds of the 70s, but who's appearing here on record for the first time ever – at the head of a totally cooking soul jazz combo! Nock's command of the piano is tremendous right ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Gearbox (UK), 1971.
Amazing sounds from Nico – material recorded for the BBC during that wonderful early 70s stretch when she had firmly broken from the Velvet Underground, and was really making some mindbending music of her own! The vibe here is a lot like Desertshore – with very spare instrumentation ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Molto Groovy Christmas
Molto Groovy, 2015.
One of the coolest, grooviest Christmas records we've heard in years – a set that's the first-ever effort from Roman Coppola's Molto Groovy Productions – and which has a mod 60s vibe all the way through! The styles here are steeped in the best Italian soundtrack modes from years back ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Resonance, 1959.
A previously-unreleased live set from legendary guitarist Wes Montgomery – recorded live in his hometown of Indianapolis, but with backing from a trio who are better known from their work on the Chicago scene – a group headed by pianist Eddie Higgins, with the wonderful Walter Perkins ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Eastern Horizons
Philips/Be! (Germany), 1967.
A totally cool little record – and one that more than lives up to the Eastern promise of its cover! The album's a real stunner from Australian reedman Charlie Munro – a beautiful mix of jazz and exotic elements, at a level that puts it up there with a rare few records that work this ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s.
Rare soul from the Detroit underground at the end of the 60s – most of it pretty darn funky too! The work here all comes from the hands of the legendary Dave Hamilton – a key Motor City talent who turned out a stunning array of music on many different labels back in the day – ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dagored (Italy), 1978.
The sound of Park Avenue – but imagined here by Italian sound library maestro Walter Rizzati – who brings a very European flavor to the record! The set's a sweet blend of strings and keyboards – definitely in the warmer side of the 70s sound library spectrum, but still with some ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s.
Those slow grinders are at it again – giving us a heady helping of their "popcorn noir" genre – a style they seem to have coined themselves! The groove here is every bit as great as previous volumes – bits of jazz, R&B, and more – all served up from a host of ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
EM (Japan), 1980.
One of those cool cases where you really don't need language at all to enjoy the sound of a singer – because Khwanta Fasawang has this amazing style that really grabs us, even if we can't understand what she's saying! The record's a key example of the lam phaen style of Thai music – a ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), Mid 60s.
One of the sweetest girl groups of the 60s – finally given their due in this great collection of work for the Chattahoochee label – most of which appears here on CD for the first time ever! The Murmaids were a wonderful trio with this beautiful harmony sound – one that echoed the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fischiando In Beat
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1968. Gatefold
We're not entirely sure what "fischiando" means, but we can definitely testify that the album lives up to the "beat" in its title – those kind of groovy, mod tunes we love so much in Italian 60s soundtracks from the great Piero Umiliani! This set's even more obscure than ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Malligator/Because (France), 1977.
The height of French disco – a huge worldwide hit for Cerrone, a nutty bit of space disco that actually holds up pretty darn well over the years! The guy's not really a looker – and the strange "animal operation" cover almost makes this look like a prog rock album – ... CD
